Christian, Mike Spirit of the Sixties Music
Musical quartet Grand Folk Railroad brings on the fun with an eclectic/eccentric mix of folk-rock-flavored, flower-powered forgotten favorites, 60’s pop gems, one hit wonders and more. You’ve heard the saying, “If you remember the 60’s, you weren’t there.” Well, we might not remember everything, but we remember the music! Some of the greatest pop songs of all time were written and recorded in the sixties. Artists ranging from the Beatles to the Spiral Staircase flooded the airwaves and record stores with fabulous new sounds, some reaching the heights of fame and others ending up as a footnote on the one-hit-wonder list. Grand Folk Railroad brings back those musical gems and the stories behind them. Your audience will learn about the songs and the artists who made them famous, and will even be invited to sing along on a few of the songs, while we work our way through the decade that changed the world.
